CHARLESTON — Property owners are suing remodeling contractors J.S. Breeden Builders Inc. and James Scott Breeden, citing alleged breach of duty and negligence.
Mark Stewart and Mary Stewart filed a complaint against the defendants in Kanawha Circuit Court, alleging that they failed to perform work in a good and workmanlike manner. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that on May 11, 2018, the parties entered into a contract to remodel and repair the plaintiffs' residence at 1415 Sweetbrier Road in Kanawha County for a total amount of $44,600.
As a result of the defendants' actions, the plaintiffs have been forced to hire new contractors to correct defective work. The plaintiffs hold J.S. Breeden Builders Inc. and James Scott Breeden responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly staff the project, which resulted in the delay and poor quality of work, attempted to charge for unauthorized repair and renovation services, and quit and refused to complete their obligations.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek all damages, with attorney's fees, costs as well as all other items that the court sees fit to award. They are represented by Jeff D. Stewart, Andrew L. Paternostro and S. Andrew Stonestreet of Stewart Bell PLLC in Charleston.
